But the 1978 Dodge, along with everything Dunn owned, was destroyed.
"At least I'm alive," said the 60-year-old Ogden native, who has spent the last 19 years traveling around in the motor home. "That's all I care about."
Dunn said had been parked at the spot for about three weeks. Before that, he was in Idaho.
Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay said the blaze was reported at 1:25 p.m.
Dunn said he lost everything in the fire his clothes, his tools, even his bus pass and had no where else to go. But as the smoke turned to steam and fire crews rolled up their hoses, Mike Dugo and Will Gracia self-described homeless veterans said they had invited Dunn to come with them while he figured out what he was doing.
Dugo also said he and Gracia hope to collect donations to buy Dunn a new motor home.
